Human body is so volatile and so well design to adjust to practically any surrounding that it might be put in.
This unique property of the human body helps it to explore the environment and make good use of the experience.
Imagine this situation wherein you are traveling to the exotic Grand Canyon and are in the transit system that will take you there.
You are looking around and clicking pictures from the bus and making the most of the sightseeing experience. Suddenly, you get a slight headache, minor tummy cramps and a tiny bit of nausea. It then aggravates and you feel really sick in the bus!
What could be possibly done in order to relieve you out of the distress as soon as possible so that by the time you reach Grand Canyon, you are fit as a fiddle to enjoy the beauty of nature!?
The solution is pretty simple- just open a bottle of peppermint and smell the fragrance! This is a quick remedy to relieve you of your motion sickness.
Other essential oils that have been effectively used in aromatherapy nausea are ginger oil, oregano oil and spearmint oil.
Chamomile oil is specifically known to have a soothing effect on stomach discomfort and cramps which are symptoms associated with motion sickness.
Prevention is always better than cure. For those who are known to suffer from motion sickness, they can smell the essential aroma therapeutic oil say, an hour before beginning the travel and you will realize what a wonderful naturally occurring boon this is! Travel will no longer be a painful reminder of your motion sickness.
It is not just travel by bus that affects some people. Hence, if you get sick traveling by road, you may as well get sick on the sea. Thus, if you anticipate a travel on water, it would be better to take precautionary measure prior to beginning the travel.
Nausea, due to other reasons, like indigestion, stomach upset, constipation and other conditions can also be helped by aroma therapy.
Using a blend of many oils can not only be cost effective but also be more beneficial than the use of one single oil.
How to Use
Just put a drop or two of any recommended oil and place it in a personal inhaler or a tissue. Inhale this for about 30 to 60 minutes before your departure. If you're still have the symptoms inhale it every 15 to 30 minutes during your trip.
Coriander and basil oils have be shown to have soothing effects on the digestive system. They are of special help when you get stomach cramps and digestive issues like constipation, diarrhea and loose motions.
It is should be remembered that although these oils are really effective and pleasant to use, it is very important to get the "original" oil and not go in for duplicate cheap varieties, that is unfortunately available in the market now. Hence, it is not only important to know how these oils help us but also to know which ones in the market should be used.
There is a limit to how much the pharmacological drugs can help us and how much our body can tolerate the drugs. At times, they do not have any effects or at times, they might be over doses of the same. This is the major disadvantage with such drugs.
Anything that is natural cannot possibly have as many ill effects as synthetic chemicals would! Hence, aromatherapy nausea can be viewed as safe and sound treatment to help us out of this debilitating condition!
